There will be 16 tough jobs across 3 Adversary modes.

Siege Mentality: Under this mode, between one to three players must defend a tower for nearly 4 minutes. The attacking team will be armed only with shotguns to capture the tower.

Hasta La Vista: This mode is inspired by Terminator 2. One team rides bikes while the other team tries to run them down through the trucks. If one of the motorcyclists reaches the checkpoint, then the team wins.

Come Out to Play: In this mode, the runners need to reach the extraction point by food. While the runners keep running, they are always being watched by the bikes or ATVs. On the other hand, hunters are only equipped with shotguns, because of which, they cannot hunt them down.


If you feel insecure about the area of your apartment or about your money, then hire bodyguards to protect you.  And that is how you can start a Heist in GTA V. We hope this has been of help to you.
